Wood Lathe and how to easily build one from scratch!

wood latheWood Lathe is something that all mechanics need. Why? Well, you can use it for various things like making Christmas and birthday presents, ornaments and craft pretty much anything. The list is literally endless; it’s all left to your imagination.

Establishing an effective home workshop is not an easy task because mostly, it requires patience. You have to slowly purchase equipment over a long period of time to get what you need. Yes, you can acquire new hand tools quickly but the larger equipment isn’t a small investment. This is enough to send an amateur craft-person to a garage sale.

But, that’s where the DIY wood lathe would make a difference. The basic model cost more than $300. It’s just a far cry from cheap but, the wood lathe is extremely versatile; it’s one of the first things you’ll find in a serious wood shop.

However, if you don’t have that kind of money to spend, you can always go for a more garden-variety lathe. It won’t have a lot of fancy features but it would be of great use. In addition, building one is extremely fun!
